“Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourself with humility toward one another, because “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.” 1 Peter 5:5-6
My Precious One,
When you first came to me, you were very aware of your depravity and brokenness.
As my spirit strengthened yours, I led you out of darkness and into my truth. But this was just the beginning…
It might be tempting to relax but true wisdom is gritting your teeth and bowing your heart, placing yourself under The One who knows the way through tricky paths of self-reliance.
Depending on me is a practice of intentional discipline. This bristles against your nature but as you focus on my limitless ability, I exchange peace for control. (Keep in mind self-sufficiency started your troubles!)
As you release agendas, your status of humility bends resistance, opening portals of unique blessing and favor; it’s the most supernatural way to get things done!
Give me your plans. Resist the temptation of pride which masks itself as responsibility and perfectionism. My mercy and grace gravitate towards those who position themselves low.”
